Testimonials
“I can't say enough about how happy and confident I am in working with Enrique. He brings an enthusiasm to his profession that is very refreshing, constantly surprising us with his depth of knowledge and his capability to not only complete the task, but to surpass our expectations. He presents us with solutions that we would not have thought about ourselves, and sees the problem better than we can explain it.”

“I've been very happy with Juraj. He is efficient, writes great code, and is an extremely nice guy to work with. Most importantly, he is self-motivated. In just his initial pass at the code base, he has contributed several optimizations and stability improvements. Regarding Toptal as a service…well, you matched us up with Juraj without me having to sort through a list of candidates, so I’m impressed.”
Matt Cotton
Dev Team Lead @ eFolder
“Toptal makes finding qualified engineers a breeze. We needed an experience ASP.NET MVC architect to guide the development of our start-up app, and Toptal had three great candidates for us in less than a week. After making our selection, the engineer was online immediately and hit the ground running. It was so much faster and easier than having to discover and vet candidates ourselves.”
Jeff Kelly

Natasha Mohanty
CTO @ FEM Inc
“Robert was such a breath of fresh air! I’m used to working with developers who don’t speak good English, don’t understand my needs, and are bad communicators in general. But Robert was not only an EXCELLENT communicator, he knew exactly what I was looking for and made it better than I thought possible. Now I have a website that works better than I thought it could for less than the cost it would have taken other developers, and in half the time. Robert is as good as they come, and a true professional. Anyone thinking of working with him, stop thinking about it and hire him. You won’t regret it.”
